. america's economy was built on free market enterprise. it was built on these principles that allowed the private sector to grow and thrive and prosper and for our families to keep more of what we earn. where we are now in america in the last 11 months is seeing this reversal of those principles that were applied to build up our economy. all of a sudden we are thinking it is okay to grow debt in our country. it is okay to borrow from countries we will soon be so beholding to. it is okay to print money out of thin air and think everything is going to magically work out. fundamentally, everyone is equal in america, everyone has equal opportunity to earn, produce and build. the fundamentals of a strong economy have got to be applied again as they were like i said in the 80s when reagan faced a worse recession than today let's learn from that piece of american history and apply the same solutions. >> what about health care reform? i assume you want some health care reform, maybe i'm wrong. do we need health care reform? >> of course we do. rising costs are crushing some of our small busin

that our progress was inevitable that america was always destined to succeed. but when the union was turned back at bull run and the allies first landed at omaha beach victory was very much in doubt. when the market crashed on black tuesday and civil rights marches were beaten on bloody sunday, the future was anything but certain. these were the times that tested the courage of our convictions and the strength of our union and despite all our dwegses and -- divisions you and disagreements, our hesitations and our fears, america prevailed because we chose to move forward as one nation as one people. again we are tested and again we must answer history's call. one year ago i took office amid two wars an economy rocked by a severe recession, a financial system on the verge of collapse and a government deeply in debt. experts from across the political spectrum warned that if we did not act we might face a second depression. so we acted immediately and aggressively. and one year later the worst of the storm has passed. but the devastation remains. one in 10

that america's competitive advantage is in financial products and financial engineering. and that these banks do produce a lot of foreign armies for the u.s. and if we start really knocking down wall street, which is getting competitive advantage to the germans, british, japanese or whoever, i don't agree with that. but you know, i think it underlies a lot of the reluctance of the administration to really get to too tough with wall street that they say it's like yesterday was good for general motors is good for america. now it's what's good for goldman sachs is good for america. not necessary goal but because they are so unpopular. but what's good for jpmorgan chase is good for america. >> no line has been drawn. there's been no edition. basically mathematics. so therefore says that as it may be, deficit. since we are tiptoeing past the cemetery nobody wants to do the math. >> there are some people, the argument here is that banks haven't dealt with a bad debt problem. they're still sitting on their balance sheet so we will end up like japan presumably. i think there is very respected people,

that happened on the national level but fundamentally changed america and essentially the foundations for the kind of society that could elect somebody like barack obama, president in 2008 and those are the voting rights act of 65, the civil rights act of '64 and immigration act of 65 and most people don't know the legislation's and they all happened under lyndon johnson and fundamentally transform who is american, who can vote, who can participate in the american's creation of a society and political system and so when i decided to do is put together an alternate tie line of defense from 65 to the present that are important from an arab american perspective so of course these are important to all americans like 9/11 and other things since the american memory is much shorter than for example the air of memory. those defense the 73 energy crisis or the 91 gulf war passed from american memory as a significant moments and then other defense like what happens in california 1985 are completely unknown to anybody outside arab america or progress of circles and had quite an impact on the com
